April Collections for Bethany Crisis Nursery

Throughout the month of April, New Life Covenant is collecting supplies such as diapers, wipes, blankets, etc. to donate to the Bethany Crisis Nursery in Duluth. The Crisis Nursery is a 24-hour family support service that includes a crisis line, emergency daycare and overnight care.

Parents need support to be effective caregivers and provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow into healthy adults. Parents who are dealing with emergencies or crises such as sudden illness, housing problems, divorce or separation, or financial strains, may need time alone to resolve the crisis.

Parents facing a crisis or needing help managing their children can contact the nursery for help. A child's parent or legal guardian can request emergency day and night care for up to three days by calling their local Crisis Nursery. Trained staff can also provide referrals, counseling and support, as well as supplies in emergency situations. Children from 0–12 years of age are eligible for Crisis Nursery care.

Your supplies can be brought to the church and placed in the marked basket in the narthex at the back of the sanctuary during the month of April. Thank you!
